It has been awhile since I have done an update on my ‘Letters Project’. Today is Mother’s Day and I am counting my blessings, the best being my four children, Jacob, Anne, Baileigh, Nathen and my partner David.
I am impressed, with myself, that I’ve managed to keep this project going. It hasn’t always been easy with other commitments, deciding who will get a letter each month and of course, a variety of other factors.
The letter for March went out to Julie who is an amazing teacher and has fueled my creative journey in a variety of ways.
The letter for April went out to Carole Moult, my editor at Riverview Park Review. When a variety of other publications wouldn’t even respond to my emails (cripes, I even applied to work for FREE to places that were hiring just to gain experience), Carole gave me a chance, the encouragement I needed and plenty of laughs a long the way. April’s Letter was a little different because it was published in the April issue of Riverview Park Review, in print and online. Feel free to check it out at http://www.riverviewparkreview.ca/ on page 50.
It is hard to believe my project is almost over. Only May, June, July and August remain. I better get working on the letter for May!
